New Site, New Blog, and Much More to Come...
Welcome to the brand new website! If you've found yourself here, you may notice a lot of "coming soon" signs all over the place. I encourage you to check back every so often to see what's new - and trust me, there will be much more in the very near future. In the mean time, you can count on new blog entries every Friday with updates on the writing project and some quick commentary on whatever aspect of pop culture I've stumbled onto recently.
Writing Update: Star Spire is currently with the editor, and the draft is coming back pretty clean. Going through this book for about the seventh (eighth?) time is just making me all the more excited to get this series out into the world. I'm working with Alana Joli Abbot, and I love the feedback I'm getting so far. We've made arrangements for her to work with me on the second book beginning in January, which will work out well for the release schedule I'm shooting for next year.
What I'm Reading: Like most writers, I'm also an avid reader. Assuming that part of the reason your here is a love of good fiction, I'll offer be offering my thoughts on whatever is filling up my downtime. This week it's The Last Druid, by Terry Brooks. For those of you who aren't familiar with his Shannara series, this is the last book (chronologically at least) in the now 33 book series. I'll be honest, the first three books in the latest cycle (The Fall of Shannara) weren't really doing much for me up until now. The last book, thus far at least, seems to be doing a much better job of ramping up the stakes to align with what I'd expect from the last novel in what has been such an epic long-running series.
Song of the Week: "Falling Sky" by Red
That's it for now. I'll be back next week with more updates. Stay healthy and safe!
